Dear Old NCC 

The sloping hills, the verdant green, 
The lovely blossoms' beauteous sheen. 

Surround our college Proud and gay. 

Where wave our color Maroon and Gray. 

What matters it how far we roam. 

Our thoughts will oft return to home. 

And hearts will e'er be true to thee. 

Our Alma Mater NCC. 

We've gathered here to fit our lives, 

As from the darkness light revives. 

So let us hail, both night and day. 

Our glorious colors. Maroon and Gray. 

We'll ever love and honor thee. 

For thou hast taught us loyalty. 

Then let our watchword "Service" be 

To Alma Mater NCC. 

You send us forth with hearts of love. 

So like a blessing from above. 

And from the path we'll never stray. 

Our dear Alma Mater Maroon and Gray. 

We'll work and fight, we'll win our way. 

When duty calls, we shall obey. 

And may we e 'er return to thee. 

Our Alma Mater NCC. 

CHORUS 

Then Rah! Rah! Rah! For our colors so gay. 

Dear Old NCC 's Maroon and Gray. 

Thy Sons and Daughters will honor thee.

Dr. Mary M. Townes 



Dr. Mary M. Townes was born to Nora McPhatter and Mitchell Townes on July 12, 1928 in Southern 
Pines, N.C. In 1950 she began teaching at North Carolina Colllege for Negroes (now NC Central Universi- 
ty), where she set the standard for hard work and achievement. Dr. Townes was the university's first director 
of the faculty-based Academic Advising Program and the first coordinator of the NCCU Graduate Research 
Program. Dr. Townes published more than 60 articles in numerous journals, including The Journal of Cellu- 
lar and Comparative Physiology, The Journal of Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology, and The Journal 
of the Elish Mitchell Scientific Society. 

During Dr. Townes' tenure as director of the Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Honors 
Undergraduate Research Training Program, she was awarded $642,159 in grants from 1980-1985. In 1993, 
Dr. Townes was recognized for her hard work and became the University's first recipient of the North Caro- 
lina Governor's Award of Excellence. In 1994, she was awarded the National Association for Equal Oppor- 
tunity Distinguished Alumna Citation. Dr. Mary M. Townes served North Carolina Central University for 44 
years. During that time she served as the chair of the Department of Biology for four years, dean of graduate 
students for seven years, and the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences for four years until she retired in 
July of 1994. 

The North Carolina Central University's Board of Trustees voted to name the new science complex, 
a $36 million building completed in July, 2005, in Dr. Mary M. Townes' honor. In the initial request to have 
the new complex named after Dr. Townes which came from, the Association of Retired NCCU Personnel, Dr. 
Arthrell Sanders, retired English professor, wrote, "For the University to name the new science complex for 
her would not only honor her memory, [but] the naming would also give greater credence to the institution's 
commitment to its mission, its history, and its legacy." 

Prior to Dr. Townes' death in 2003, she gave an anonymous gift of $239,000 in order to establish The 
Mary M. Townes Continuing Education Scholarship Fund. Upon her death, she donated $761 ,000 to the 
University. Dr. Townes was an inspiration to us all and truly exemplified "truth and service."

J enrolled at North Carolina Central University in August 2002, eager to move out of my parent's 
house to become independent. I imagined that when I left my parents home in Maryland, I 

would have adjusted quickly to North Carolina, but I had a hard time. Everything was so for- 
eign to me and I didn't know anyone in the area. I also started having doubts whether NCCU was 
the institution I wanted to further my education and whether or not I wanted to major in Visual Com- 
munications. After a month of living in North Carolina, I became accustomed to the university and 
gained more confidence in being away from home. I also realized that I made the right decisions 
about NCCU and Visual Communications. After receiving my undergraduate degree three and a half 
years later, I became an employee of the university, designing marketing materials for the Office of 
University and Community College Partnerships. 

During my matriculation at NCCU, I was provided with the foundation I needed to thrive in this 
world. I have received extensive training in my chosen field of study in areas such as book publi- 
cation, web development and classical graphic design techniques. My greatest accomplishment at 
NCCU was being elected as the Editor-in-Chief of the Eagle Yearbook for two consecutive years. 
This position has helped develop my communication skills, leadership, and educated me more about 
organization and time management. My major has also helped me tremendously with the Eagle 
Yearbook because I was able to learn and use unfamiliar software and build my portfolio. 

If I had to give advice for the undergraduate students, I would suggest that they be active in 
their departments, join many organizations that are beneficial to them, network, have business cards 
available, and most importantly get experience. The more active you are, the more people you will 
meet and find greater opportunities. 

I would like to thank the following individuals for my success and achievements: Dr. Melvin 
Carver, Connie Floyd, Annie Bennett, Chad Hughes, Isabel Chicquor, Pam Tolson, Dr. Janice Dar- 
gan, Wendolyn Perry, Carmine Dorsey, Kyle Serba, Robert Lawson, Dr. Bruce dePyssler, and last 
but not least my family and friends. Without all of you some things would not be possible. 

Thank you North Carolina Central University!

Article Title: "Student dreams of Lacrosse Team" 

by Shereka Littlejohn, Echo Staff Writer 

Lyie Burnham looked for a criminal justice program and a lacrosse team when he was looking into 
his college choices. He accepted an academic scholarship to NCCU, only to find that there was no 
lacrosse team. Burnham, who says that lacrosse is so important to him because he moved around a 
lot and lacrosse helped him to make friends, set out to establish a lacrosse team here at NCCU. He 
found student support for lacrosse after posting flyers around campus and advertising on AudioNet, 
NCCU's campus access radio. Burnham's biggest hurdle is finding an advisor for the team, but he 
is determined to establish a lacrosse team by the time he graduates.

Article Title: "Student goes for the win on Jeopardy" 
by Erika Holt, Echo Staff writer 
September 29, 2005 
Article Title: "Eagle selected for Jeopardy Championships" 



Malisha Butts, a senior history major and a member of NCCU's Honda Campus All-Challenge 
(HCASC) Quiz Bowl team, was chosen along with four other students from the Triangle area to 
compete in the Jeopardy! College Championship tournament. She was chosen to compete for the 
$100,000 grand phze. NCCU was the only histohcally blacl< college or university (HBCU) to have a 
student participate in the 2005 Jeopardy! College Championship. In order to prepare for the compe- 
tition. Butts said she would prepare like she would normally for a quiz bowl competition by studying, 
continuing to watch Jeopardy and playing the game version of Jeopardy on her Playstation 2. Butts, 
a Durham native, was one of the first National Meht Scholars recruited to NCCU. Earlier this year 
at the HCASC, Butts won first place for the most points per game in the Rube Foster Division and 
tied for second place for most points per game overall. The show was taped at the RBC Center in 
Raleigh, Oct. 1-2 and was broadcast Nov. 7-18. Butts said... "With the money I earn from Jeopardy! 
I will start a trust fund for my daughter [Aaliyah]." To become a contestant, Butts had to take a pre- 
test. After passing the 10-question test, she took a 50-question test and was one of six students who 
passed.

come out of Durham as well as North Carolina.

Article Title: "Student awarded American Chemical Society Award" 

Emily Nwakpuda, a sophomore chemistry major, was one of four North Carolina residents who 
[were named] recipients of the National American Chemical Society (ACS) Scholar Award. Nwak- 
puda, a native of Durham, was a participant of ACS's Project SEED Program, which is designed to 
encourage economically disadvantaged high school students to pursue career opportunities in the 
chemical sciences. While maintaining a 3,7 GPA, Nwakpuda has been recognized as a Chancellor's 
Scholar, a member of the NCCU chapter of 100 Black Women, Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society, and 
the NCCU women's tennis team. When asked how she balances her work and extracurricular ac- 
tivities, Nwakpuda said, "Priority is the key. Life is simple; if you keep things simple, everything will 
work out." Upon graduating from NCCU, she plans to attend graduate school and become a chemis- 
try professor.

"She's your queen to be".... Truly an elegant and 
enchanting evening was had by all who attended the 
Coronation of Miss Kewanda Davetta Merritt. The 1999- 
2000 Miss NCCU, Cemesha McAllister, presided over the 
occasion. The installation of the new SGA officers was 
completed by Mr. Roland Gaines, Vice Chancellor for 
Student Affairs. Sharonda Arnold, Miss NCCU 2004-2005, 
then took her farewell walk and presented a heartfelt 
speech in which she thanked those who helped her in 
achieving all that she had accomplished. Wearing radiant 
red gowns or impressive suits and with beautiful smiles

on their faces, the organizational queens and icings made an entrance under 
different themes. The royal court, sparkling from head to toe, was introduced 
and crowned by each of the SGA class presidents. Kewanda Merritt proceeded 
down the aisle after a rendition of the Coming to America song "She's your 
queen to be" and was crowned by Mr. Roland Gaines and Miss Sharonda 
Arnold. Once the new queen accepted the crown, she was presented with 
tributes starting with a show stopping selection by Mr. Marcus Anderson, 
who also saluted each queen with his selection on the saxophone. The NCCU 
Dance group recalled our African roots with a dance from the motherland, 
and the crowd was taken to church with a medley of songs performed by Ms. 
Amanda Lowe.

Kewanda D. Merritt, as Miss North 
Carolina Central University, serves as an 
ambassador for the University. She fulfills 
speaking engagements, appears at many 
different events, serves as a recruiter, and 
is a liaison between the student body and 
the administration-faculty body. Merritt 
ran for the position because she felt that 
she was capable of representing all the 
aspects of the University and was some- 
one who could not only represent the 
school but also encourage the student 
body through activities and motivational 
speaking. Merritt's biggest goal for the 
year is to implement a mentoring program 
entitled Eaglets. This program would pair 
upperclassmen with freshmen in an at- 
tempt to retain more students after their 
first year at North Carolina Central Uni- 
versity. 

Merritt is a native of Lumberton, N.C. 
She is an NC Teaching Fellow, and has 
served as a resident assistant, a member 
of the NCCU Modern Dance Team, and a volunteer at Eastway Elementary School. She is cur- 
rently serving as the parliamentarian of the Alpha Lambda Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, 
Inc., the Student Government Association Executive Board, and she is the director of Supporting 
Our University Queen (SOUQ). She has also received numerous awards and honors during her 
matriculation at NCCU. Upon graduating from NCCU, Merritt plans to teach high school English in 
her hometown of Lumberton in order to give back to the community that molded her into the per- 
son she is today. Her ultimate goal is to receive her masters in school administration and become 
a high school principal.

Harvey Earl Cummings II is a senior jazz studies student from Charlotte, NC. He is 
heavily involved in many organizations, including the University Ambassadors, Women's Task 
Force, NCCU Jazz Ensemble and Combo, and the Student Government Association. He 
served as Mr. Sophomore 2003-2004, a University Peer Leader, and even the mascot at the 
football games. He is also an active member of the Gamma Beta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha 
Fraternity, Inc. 

Harvey is a recipient of the prestigious John Coltrane Award, the Grady Tate Scholar- 
ship, and the Congressional Black Caucus Performing Arts Scholarship. Along with being an 
incentive scholar and honor roll student, Harvey was one of twelve students from NCCU to 
perform as a member of the HBCU All-Star Jazz Ensemble for the International Association 
of Jazz Educators (lAJE). While Harvey has many interests, his true love is music. He enjoys 

composing music on his saxo- 
phone, which he has been playing 
for over ten years. Harvey has two 
loving parents, Joan and Harvey 
Cummings, who are his role mod- 
els as NCCU alumni themselves. 
After his college experience is over, 
Harvey plans to go to graduate 
school to study music performance 
and, ultimately, to pursue his doc- 
toral degree in music education. 
He hopes one day to be able to 
educate other young aspiring musi- 
cians at any of the historically Black 
colleges and universities. 






Choir Ball is a traditional and successful event for all NCCU students, and for the 
general public during Homecoming. Open to all ages, the event featured many 
impersonations from Missy Elliott, to Destiny's Child, Ciara, Kanye West and even 
Fantasia, to name a few. Some of these guys mocked Destiny's Child performance 
at the 2005 BET Music Awards. At the end, the choir paid special tribute to the late 
Luther Vandross.

On September 25, 2005 the Homecoming Comedy Show was held in the IVIcClendon- 
IVIcDougald Gymnasium. The show was filled with laughs from the beginning to the 
end. Hosted by comedian Corwin O who performed between each act, the shoe featured 
other comedians including Queen Aishah, Rod Man, and Bruce Bruce. Tackling subjects 
of sex to real life issues. Bruce-Bruce was the ultimate highlight. He joked about every- 
thing, from the campus police, to members in the audience.

The fashion show was a great event that opened with performances from the male dance 
troupe, Naughty Boyz and their sisters, Lady Lyke. The show featured several themes such 
as Beetle juice. Kill Bill vol.1. Grease, and Belly to name a few. The show allowed students 
from Central, to model local designer clothing, as well as show off their skills on the run-way. 
Even though Bon Vivant sponsored the fashion show, there was enough time to allow other 
modeling groups to show their talents. The groups included, Evalesco, Illusion, Black 
Finesse, and Vyce-Verza.

The Homecoming Game took place at the O'Kelly Riddick Stadium between two undefeated CIAA 
teams, St. Augustine College and North Carolina Cisntral University. Unfortunately, St. Augustine 
Falcons destroyed the NCCU Eagles on their own field. The final score was 22-8. What a way to 
loose your. first game of the season! But, the mighty eagles of NCCU played hard, and most of all, 
they put on a good show for everyone.

This year's concert marked the end of the Homecoming festivities. The concert featured

Honda Battle of the Bands 

The Honda Battle of the Bands Invitational Showcase featured 
the North Carolina Central University's (NCCU) Marching Sound 
Machine for the second consecutive year. The NCCU Sound Ma- 
chine was among the 10 chosen historically black colleges and 
universities (HBCUs) marching bands and the only North Caro- 
lina band that was scheduled to perform on January 28, 2006, at 
the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia. The college bands show- 
cased the rich diversity of African American musical heritage and 
culture with fresh routines, riveting choreography and contempo- 
rary song selections ranging from the best in R&B, funk, Hip-Hop, 
classical and jazz-something for spectators of all ages. The spon- 
sors of the Honda Battle of the Bands, American Honda Motor 
Company Inc., awarded $141,000 in grants to the bands. Each 
school earned a $10,000 grant for their music programs as well 
as a $1 ,000 grant for their performances during the celebration 
tour. NCCU was chosen by HBCU commissioners, presidents, 
band directors and fans who judged 41 participating bands on 
showmanship, musicianship, and fan interaction during the cel- 
ebration tour, which took place during the college football season. 
School officials were not permitted to vote for their own schools.

Eagle-Aggie Classic 



The Aggie-Eagle Classic ended almost like last year's game but 
N.C. A&T's missing a 43-yard field goal secured an Eagle victory. 
NCCU won with a 23-22 score over its long time rival. NCCU se- 
nior Torey Ross made the game-winning score after eluding four 
of A&T's defenders for the touchdown. NCCU junior running back 
Greg Pruitt, Jr. rushed for 130 yards on 23 carries to earn offen- 
sive MVP honors for the Eagles. Derrick Ray, a sophomore at 
NCCU, became the Eagles' defensive MVP with eight tackles and 
a quarterback hurry. The victory took NCCU to a 2-0 status.

The 2005 Eagles are the first team in NCCU's 
82-year gridiron history to win 10 games in a 
season. There was a capacity crowd of 10,580 
of mostly Eagles fans who watched as NCCU 
overcame a 17-0 halftime deficit to capture its 
first conference title in 25 years. Sophomore, 
and the Eagles' MVP, Brandon Gilbert kicked a 
30-yard field goal with three seconds remaining 
to lift the Eagles to a 26-23 victory over Bowie 
State University. The second half of the cham- 
pionship game was dominated by NCCU as the 
Eagles recorded 260 total yards and held the 
Bulldogs to 169 yards and only one trip to the 
end zone. The win made coach Rod Broadway 
even more proud of the NCCU Eagle football 
team. The victory over Bowie State earned 
NCCU the CIAA championship and the number 
4 ranking in the NCAA regional poll with a 10-1 
record.

SORORITY, 




s-*' « ' ~- 








In 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. became 
America's first Greek-letter organization estab- 
lished by Black college women. The sorority roots 
date back to Howard University, in Washington 
D.C. Ethel Hedgeman Lyie of St. Louis, Missouri 
conceived the idea for the sorority formation. She 
viewed the Sorority as an instrument for enriching 
the social and intellectual aspects of college life 
by providing mental stimulation through interaction 
with friends and associates. Through the years, 
however, Alpha Kappa Alpha's function has be- 
come more complex. After her incorporation as a 
perpetual body in 1913, Alpha Kappa Alpha gradu- 
ally branched out and became the channel through 
which selected college trained women improved 
the socioeconomic conditions in their city, state, 
nation, and the world. 

Alpha Kappa Alpha is a sisterhood composed of 
women who have consciously chosen this affilia- 
tion as a means of self-fulfillment through volun- 
teer service. Alpha Kappa Alpha cultivates and 
encourages high scholastic and ethical standards; 
promotes unity and friendship among college 
women; alleviates problems concerning girls and 
women; maintains a progressive interest in college 
life; and serves all mankind through a nucleus of 
more than 170,000 women in the United States, 

ky the Caribbean, Europe, 

fk\ and Africa. 

I— \ Candidacy for 

p \ membership into Alpha 

_. — — ' Kappa Alpha Sorority is 

open to women of high ethical and scholastic stan- 
dards who are pursing or have completed courses 
leading to a degree in an accredited college or 
university. The official headquarters is in Chicago, 
Illinois.

January 5, 1911, on the campus of Indiana Uni- 
versity at Bloomington, Indiana. The fraternity is 
enjoyed by college men everywhere, regardless 
of their color, religion, or national origin. Kappa 
Alpha Psi is proud that the Constitution has never 
contained any clause which either excluded or 
suggested the exclusion of a man from member- 
ship merely because of his color, creed, or national 
origin. The Constitution of Kappa Alpha Psi is 
predicated upon, and dedicated to, the principles 
of achievement through a truly democratic Frater- 
nity. 

Chartered and incorporated originally under the 
laws of the State of Indiana as Kappa Alpha Nu on 
May 15, 1911, the name was changed to Kappa 
Alpha Psi on a resolution offered and adopted 
at the Grand Chapter in December 1914. This 
change became effective April 15, 1915, on a proc- 
lamation by then Grand Polemarch, Elder Watson 
Diggs. Thus, the name acquired a distinctive 
Greek letter symbol and Kappa Alpha Psi thereby 
became a Greek letter Fraternity in every sense of 
the designation. 

From its inception, and for the next six years. 
Brother Diggs served as the Grand Polemarch of 
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity. Through his leader- 
ship and indefatigable application, augmented by 
the efforts of B.K Armstrong, and John M. Lee, 
who comprised the remainder of the original Grand 
Board of Directors, the infant Fraternity was guided 
through the most perilous years of its life. These 
three men are a credit to the organization's sur- 
vival.

On Friday evening, November 17, 1911, three 
Howard University undergraduate students, with 
the assistance of their faculty advisor, gave birth to 
the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. This event occurred 
in the office of biology Professor Ernest E. Just, 
the faculty advisor, in the Science Hall (now known 
as Thirkield Hall). The three liberal arts students 
were Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper and Frank 
Coleman. From the initials of the Greek phrase 
meaning "friendship is essential to the soul," the 
name Omega Psi Phi was derived. The phrase 
was selected as the motto. Manhood, scholarship, 
perseverance, and uplift were adopted as cardinal 
principles. A decision was made regarding the de- 
sign for the pin and emblem, and thus ended the 
first meeting of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. 

The next meeting was conducted on November 
23, 1911. Edgar Love became the first Grand 
Basileus (National President). Cooper and Cole- 
man were selected Grandkeeper of the Records 
(National Secretary) and Grandkeeper of Seals 
(National Treasurer), respectively. Eleven Howard 
University undergraduate men were selected as 
chartered members. 

Alpha Chapter was organized with fourteen char- 
tered members on December 15, 1911. Love, 
Cooper and Coleman were elected the chapter's 
first Basileus, Keeper of Records, and Keeper of 
Seals respectively. 

Currently, Omega Psi Phi has initiated more than 
130,000 members and has over 500 chapters in 
forty-four states, the District of Columbia, Europe, 
Asia, Africa, the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, and 
Panama. Tau Psi Chapter on NCCU's campus is a 
vital fore which enables and inspires the maximum 
accomplishment on its members.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was founded 
Howard University in Wasliington, D.C., January 
9, 1914, by tliree young African-American male 
students. The founders. Honorable A. Langston 
Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honor- 
able Charles I. Brown, organized a Greek letter 
fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of 
brotherhood, scholarship, and service. 

The founders created an organization that viewed 
itself as "a part of the general community rather 
than "apart from" the general community They 
believed that each potential member should be 
judged by his won merits rather than his family 
background or affluence... without regard of race, 
nationality skin tone or texture of hair. The fraterni- 
ty exists today as part of an even greater brother- 
hood which would be devoted to the "inclusive we" 
rather than the "exclusive we". 

From its inception, the Founders also conceived 
Phi Beta Sigma as a mechanism to deliver servic- 
es to the general community. Rather than gaining 
skills to be utilized exclusively for themselves and 
their immediate families, the founders of Phi Beta 
Sigma held a deep conviction that they would re- 
turn their newly acquired skills to the communities 
from which they had come. This deep conviction 
was mirrored in the Fraternity's motto, "Culture For 
Service and Service For Humanity". 

Today, eighty-seven years later, Phi Beta Sigma 
has blossomed into an international organization 
of leaders. No longer a single entity, the Fraternity 
has now established the Phi Beta Sigma Educa- 
tional Foundation, the Phi Beta Sigma Housing 
Foundation, the Phi Beta Sigma Federal Credit 
Union, and the Phi Beta Sigma Charitable Out- 
reach Foundation. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. 
founded in 1920 with the assistance of Phi Beta 
Sigma, is the sister organization. No other fra- 
ternity and sorority are constitutionally bound as 
Sigma and Zeta. We both enjoy and foster a mutu- 
ally supportive relationship.

Information and programs for the academic 
year: 

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded 
on January 16, 1920 on tiie campus of Howard 
University in Washington, DC by five outstand- 
ing wonnen. These women believed that through 
scholarship, service, sisterly love and the essence 
of finer womanhood, they could make a difference. 
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was founded on the simple 
belief that sorority elitism and socializing should 
not overshadow the real mission for progressive 
organizations - to address societal mores, ills, prej- 
udices, poverty, and health concerns of the day. 
Here on the campus of North Carolina Central Uni- 
versity are the illustrious ladies of the "No Guts, No 
Glory" Gamma Gamma Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta 
Sorority Incorporated. We are "Continuing the 
Legacy of the Dove" through activities and events 
such as Highway Clean-up, Read to the Children, 
Volunteering at the Durham Food Bank, Sleep out 
for the Homeless, and various sisterhood activities 
that makes us stronger. I We are excited about the 
work of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated and 
please believe that the best is yet to come. This is 
why we can say that "Zeta is the epitome of finer 
womanhood and true sisterhood."

Adjunct Instructor 

Mr. Chad Hughes, an 
adjunct instructor in the Art 
Department, received his 
BRA from East Carolina 
University and his M.F.A. 
from the University NC- 
Greensboro. He began 
teaching classes 25 years 
ago, and five of those years 
have been dedicated to 
NCCU. His favorite classes 
to teach are studio classes 
where the students are 
not only being creative but 
learning hov^/ to use new 
skills. In the short time he 
has been at NCCU, he 
can't say that there has 
been a significant change 
in students. He has found 
students enjoyable, re- 
spectful and eager to learn. 
His biggest concern for the 
students is how they man- 
age their time and not pro- 
crastinating when it comes 
to studying and projects.

er cultures. The Departments attempts to match student career objectives with growing 
labor force needs. Beyond the intrinsic value of acquiring a second or third language, 
the Department believes in and promotes the applicability of foreign language study. 
Many challenging language courses are taught by native speakers. Innovative teaching 
techniques and strategies are highly emphasized and enhanced by modern technology. 
Outside of the classroom students participate in foreign language clubs, foreign film 
festivals, study abroad and in activities where languages are used. Study abroad is one 
of the major objectives of the Department.

NCCU ATHLETIC TRAINING EDUCATION PROGRAM BECOMES FIRST ACCREDITED AT HBCU 

MAY 3. 2005 

North Carolina Central University became the first Historically Black 
College or University (HBCU) in the nation to have the distinction 
of being granted initial accreditation to the Athletic Training Educa- 
tion Program (ATEP). Currently, of the 322 undergraduate CAAHEP 
accredited programs, African-Americans represent only 2% of the 
more than 30,000 certified members. The CAAHEP accreditation al- 
lows ATEP graduates to sit for the National Athletic Trainer's Associ- 
ation Board of Certification exam. Certified athletic trainers are allied 
health professionals who deal with injury prevention, evaluation and 
management in physically active populations. Once they are certi- 
fied, an athletic trainer can be employed in a variety of settings such 
as a college/university, high school, sports medicine/physical ther- 
apy clinics, hospitals, industrial/corporate settings, the military, professional sports, and as a physician extender. 
All of the students and staff are excited about the accreditation and are working to represent the athletic training 
program here at NCCU.

Carried By Angels 

by Colette Winston 

Dear parents, friends and loved ones 

Of these precious angels you've lost 

God sees your broken spirits 

God knows the terrible cost 

God summoned Heaven's Angels 

Long before the call came in 

To share the frightful warning 

Of what would soon begin 

"I will get these leaders," 

God said, "And bring them home with me 

Where they'll live in Heaven's School 

Where it's safe and terror free" 

God prepared a special school 

It stands out from all the rest 

The Welcome mat reads "Eagle Pride" 

It's reserved for heaven's best 

Your friends will long remember 

All the cool times that you shared 

And the angels will remind them 

How much you cared 

He took these precious people 

In a twinkling of an eye 

They are on their way to Heaven 

To their home in the sky 

Please keep them safe 

Through prayers, love and sharing 

And holding to the faith 

That peace will surely reign one day 

In schools throughout the lands 

For all our future hopes and dreams 

Rest in God's hands
